例えば、入力装置204が、コンピューティング装置202の表示装置210に接して置かれ、それによりカバーとして作用し得るように、フレキシブルヒンジ206によって回転動作が支援され得る。 For example, the input device 204 is placed in contact with the display device 210 of the computing device 202, thereby so can act as a cover, rotational movement by a flexible hinge 206 can be assisted. 入力装置204はまた、コンピューティング装置202の背部に接して(例えば、コンピューティング装置202上の表示装置210とは反対側に配置されたコンピューティング装置202の後部筐体に接して)配置されるように回転されてもよい。 Input device 204 may also contact the back of the computing device 202 is disposed (e.g., in contact with the rear housing of the computing device 202 disposed on the side opposite to the display device 210 on the computing device 202) it may be rotated so.

当然に、多様なその他の位置付けも支援される。 Of course, a variety of other positioning is also supported. 例えば、コンピューティング装置202及び入力装置204は、これら双方が図2に示された表面に対してフラットに置かれるような配置を想定し得る。 For example, the computing device 202 and input device 204 may assume a configuration as laid flat against these both shown in Figure 2 the surface. 他の例においては、タイプ打ちを支援し得るように、入力装置204は表面に対してフラットに置かれ、コンピューティング装置202は、例えば、コンピューティング装置202の背面に置かれるスタンドを使用するなどして、表示装置210を眺めることを可能にする角度に配置される。 In other instances, as may assist typing, input device 204 is placed flat against the surface, the computing device 202, for example, to use the stand to be placed in the rear of the computing device 202 and they are arranged at an angle to allow a view of the display device 210. 例えば三脚型配置、ミーティング用配置、及びプレゼンテーション用配置など、その他の例も企図される。 For example tripod arrangement for meetings arrangement, and the like presentation arrangement, other examples are also contemplated.

接続部302は、この例では、磁気結合デバイス304、306と、機械結合用突起308、310と、複数の通信コンタクト312とを含むものとして示されている。 Connecting portion 302, in this example, the magnetic coupling device 304, 306, and coupling projections 308, 310 are shown as including a plurality of communication contacts 312. 磁気結合デバイス304、306は、1つ以上の磁石の使用により、コンピューティング装置202の相補的な磁気結合デバイスと磁気的に結合するように構成される。 Magnetic coupling device 304, 306 through the use of one or more magnets, the complementary magnetic coupling device and configured to magnetically couple the computing device 202. 斯くして、入力装置204は、磁力を使用して、コンピューティング装置202に物理的に取り付けられ得る。 Thus, the input device 204, using the magnetic force can physically attached to the computing device 202.

接続部302はまた、入力装置204とコンピューティング装置202との間に機械的な物理接続を形成するための機械結合用突起308、310を含んでいる。 Connecting portion 302 also includes a coupling protrusion 308, 310 for forming a mechanical physical connection between the input device 204 and computing device 202. 機械結合用突起308、310は、次の図にて更に詳細に示されている。 Coupling protrusions 308 and 310 is illustrated in more detail in the following figure.

図4は、機械結合用突起308、310と複数の通信コンタクト312とを含んだ図3の接続部302の斜視図を示す実装例400を示している。 Figure 4 shows an implementation 400 showing a perspective view of the connecting portion 302 of FIG. 3 including the coupling protrusions 308, 310 and a plurality of communication contacts 312. 図示のように、機械結合用突起308、310は、接続部302の表面から離れる方向に延在するように構成されており、この例においては垂直であるが、その他の角度も企図される。 As shown, the coupling projections 308, 310 are configured so as to extend in a direction away from the surface of the connection portion 302, is a vertical in this example, other angles are also contemplated.

機械結合用突起308、310は、コンピューティング装置202の上記溝内の相補的なキャビティ(穴)内に受容されるように構成される。 Coupling protrusions 308, 310 are configured to be received in a complementary cavity (hole) in the groove of the computing device 202. そのように受容されるとき、機械結合用突起308、310は、これら突起の高さ及びキャビティの深さに対応するように定められる軸に整列されない力が加えられるときの、これら装置間の機械的な結び付きを促進する。 When so receptor, coupling protrusions 308 and 310, when the height and not aligned to the axis defined to correspond to the depth of the cavity forces the projections are added, between these devices of the machine to promote the ties.

例えば、突起の高さ及びキャビティの深さに従う先述の縦軸に一致する力が印加されるとき、ユーザは、磁石のみによって与えられる力に打ち勝って、入力装置204をコンピューティング装置202から分離する。 For example, when the force that matches the longitudinal axis of the foregoing according to the height and depth of the cavity of the projection is applied, the user overcomes the force provided solely by the magnet, separating the input device 204 from the computing device 202 . しかしながら、その他の角度では、機械結合用突起308、310がキャビティ内で機械的に結び付き、それにより、入力装置204をコンピューティング装置202から取り外すことに耐える力が、磁気結合デバイス304、306の磁力に加えて生み出される。 However, other angles, coupling protrusions 308, 310 mechanically ties within the cavity, whereby the force to withstand the removal of the input device 204 from the computing device 202, the magnetic force of the magnetic coupling device 304, 306 It is in addition created to. 斯くして、機械結合用突起308、310は、書籍からページを破り取るのをまねるようにコンピューティング装置202から入力装置204を取り外すことにバイアスを掛けることができるとともに、装置を分離しようとするその他の試みを制限し得る。 Thus to, coupling protrusions 308 and 310, it is possible to apply a bias to remove the input device 204 from the computing device 202 to mimic to take defeating page from the book, to be separated a device It may limit the other attempts.

接続部302はまた、複数の通信コンタクト312を含むものとして示されている。 Connecting portion 302 is also shown as including a plurality of communication contacts 312. 複数の通信コンタクト312は、コンピューティング装置202の対応する通信コンタクトと接触して、装置間の通信結合を形成するように構成される。 A plurality of communication contacts 312 in contact with the corresponding communication contact of the computing device 202 is configured to form a communication coupling between devices. 通信コンタクト312は、例えば、入力装置204とコンピューティング装置202との間の一貫した通信接点を提供するように構成された複数のばね仕掛けのピンを用いた形成によるなど、多様な手法で構成され得る。 Communications contact 312, for example, such as by formed using a plurality of spring-loaded pins that are configured to provide a consistent communication contact between the input device 204 and computing device 202, is composed of a variety of techniques obtain. 故に、通信接点は、装置のぶつかり合いなどの小さい動き中にもそのままであるように構成され得る。 Therefore, communication contact can be configured to be in a small movement such as clash of the device remains unchanged. コンピューティング装置202上にピンを配置し且つ入力装置204上にコンタクトを配置することを含め、多様なその他の例も企図される。 Including placing the contact on the computing device 202 pins arranged and the input device over 204, it is contemplated various other examples.

図5は、表示領域ユーザ入力センシング技術を実装した表示装置500の一例を示している。 Figure 5 shows an example of a display device 500 that implements the display area user input sensing technology. 表示装置500は、様々なデータ及び情報がコンピューティング装置によって表示され得るアクティブ表示領域502を含んだインタラクティブ表示装置である。 Display device 500 is an interactive display device including the active display area 502 in which various data and information may be displayed by a computing device. 表示領域502は、表示されるデータ及び情報が、場合によりコンピューティング装置によって受信されたユーザ入力に応答して、時間とともに変更されることができるので、アクティブ表示領域として参照される。 Display area 502, the data and information to be displayed, optionally in response to user input received by the computing device, it is possible to change over time is referred to as the active display area. 表示装置500はまた、アクティブ表示領域502を囲み且つそれに隣接した、平行線模様で図示された拡張センサ領域504を含んでいる。 Display device 500 also and surrounds the active display area 502 adjacent thereto, and includes an extension sensor region 504 illustrated in cross-hatching. 例えばユーザの手の指、スタイラス及びペンなどの物体が、アクティブ表示領域502の表面及び/又は拡張センサ領域504の表面に触れているとき及び/又はこれら表面に近接しているとき、ユーザ入力を受け取ることができる。 For example the user's finger, when an object such as a stylus and a pen is in proximity when and / or the surfaces are touching the surface and / or surface of the extension sensor region 504 of the active display area 502, a user input it is possible to receive. 拡張センサ領域504は、アクティブ表示領域502のエッジに沿ったユーザ入力を検知することの助けとなる。 Extended sensor area 504 to aid in sensing the user input along the edge of the active display area 502. アクティブ表示領域502のエッジとは、拡張センサ領域504に最も近いアクティブ表示領域502の部分であるアクティブ表示領域502の外縁を意味する。 The edge of the active display area 502 refers to the outer edge of the active display area 502 that is closest part of the active display area 502 on the extension sensor area 504.

入力ハンドラーモジュール804はまた、決定したユーザ入力に基づいて、様々なアクションを起こしてもよい。 Input handler module 804 also based on the user input to determine, may cause various actions. 例えば、入力ハンドラーモジュール804は、要求された機能又は動作を実行するために、決定したユーザ入力を指し示すものを、コンピューティング装置の1つ以上のその他モジュールに提供し得る。 For example, the input handler module 804, to perform the requested function or operation, what points to determined user input may provide one or more other modules of the computing device. 他の一例として、入力ハンドラーモジュール804それ自体が、要求された機能又は動作を実行してもよい。 As another example, the input handler module 804 itself may perform the requested function or operation.

入力データ収集モジュール802は、様々な時に、入力データ808を入力ハンドラーモジュール804に提供し得る。 Input data collection module 802, at various times, may provide input data 808 to the input handler module 804. 例えば、入力データ収集モジュール802は、入力データ808が生成されたときに、入力データ808を入力ハンドラーモジュール804に提供し得る。 For example, input data collection module 802, when the input data 808 has been generated, may provide input data 808 to the input handler module 804. 他の一例として、入力データ収集モジュール802は、ユーザ入力が完了した後に(例えば、そのユーザ入力に関する存続期間が過ぎ去り、その物体がもはや表示装置の表面に接触(あるいは近接)しているとして検知されなくなった後に)、入力データ808を入力ハンドラーモジュール804に提供してもよい。 As another example, input data collection module 802, after the user input is completed (e.g., the duration about the user input is gone, is detected as the object is no longer in contact with the surface of the display device (or close) after missing), may provide input data 808 to the input handler module 804.

他の例では、入力データ収集モジュール802は、或るユーザ入力に関する入力データ808を、或る特定のイベントが発生するまで、該入力データ808を入力ハンドラーモジュール804に提供せずに保持してもよい。 In another example, input data collection module 802, input data 808 relating to a certain user input, until a particular event occurs, be maintained without providing input data 808 to the input handler module 804 good. 様々な異なるイベントが、モジュール802をして、入力データ808をモジュール804に提供させることができる。 A variety of different events, and the module 802, it is possible to provide the input data 808 to the module 804. モジュール802をして入力データ808をモジュール804に提供させ得る1つのイベントは、物体の位置によって指し示されるユーザ入力がアクティブ表示領域内にあることである。 One event that can be provided the input data 808 to the module 802 to the module 804 is that the user input indicated by the position of the object is in an active display area. 故に、ユーザ入力がアクティブ表示領域内にあることに応答して、モジュール802は入力データ808をモジュール804に提供する。 Thus, in response to the user input is in the active display area, the module 802 provides input data 808 to the module 804.

モジュール802をして入力データ808をモジュール804に提供させ得る別の1つのイベントは、ユーザ入力がアクティブ表示の外側にあるものの、今後に(例えば、ユーザ入力の関連存続期間中に)アクティブ表示領域内になることが予測されることである。 Another one event to the module 802 capable of providing input data 808 to the module 804, although the user input is outside the active display, in the future (for example, during the relevant lifetime of the user input) the active display area it is to be expected to be within. ユーザ入力は、例えばユーザ入力の速度及び/又はユーザ入力の向きに基づいてなど、様々なルール又は基準に基づいて、今後にアクティブ表示領域内になると予測されることができる。 User input, for example, based on the speed and / or orientation of the user input user input, based on the various rules or criteria, can be predicted to be active display area in the future. 例えば、ユーザ入力がアクティブ表示領域の外側にあり、且つユーザ入力の向きがアクティブ表示領域を向いている場合、そのユーザ入力は今後にアクティブ表示領域内になると予測される。 For example, there user input is outside the active display area, and when the direction of the user input is directed to the active display area, the user input is expected to be active display area in the future. 他の一例として、ユーザ入力がアクティブ表示領域の外側にあり、ユーザ入力の向きがアクティブ表示領域を向いており、且つユーザ入力の速さが閾量より大きい場合、そのユーザ入力は今後にアクティブ表示領域内になると予測される。 As another example, there user input is outside the active display area, the orientation of the user input faces the active display area, and when the speed of the user input is greater than a threshold amount, the user inputs active display future It is expected to be in the area. この閾量は例えば毎秒4インチとし得るが、その他の閾量も企図される。 The threshold amount may be a per 4 inches for example, other threshold amount are also contemplated. 故に、ユーザ入力が今後にアクティブ表示領域内になると予測されることに応答して、モジュール802は入力データ808をモジュール804に提供する。 Thus, in response to the user input is expected to be active display area in the future, the module 802 provides input data 808 to the module 804.

図9は、ユーザ入力の一例とともに図5の表示装置例500を示している。 Figure 9 shows a display device example 500 of FIG. 5 with an example of a user input. 表示装置500は、上述のように、拡張センサ領域504(平行線模様を用いて図示)によって囲まれたアクティブ表示領域502を含んでいる。 Display device 500, as described above, contains the active display area 502 surrounded by the expanded sensor area 504 (shown with cross-hatching). ユーザの指606を介して、ユーザ入力が受け取られる。 Through the user's finger 606, user input is received.

図9のユーザ入力は、右から左への動作として示されており、このユーザ入力は、拡張センサ領域504内で開始してアクティブ表示領域502内に移動している。 User input of FIG. 9 is shown as an operation from right to left, the user input has been moved to the active display area 502 starting in the extended sensor area 504. ユーザの指の終了位置が、破線の輪郭の手を用いて示されている。 End position of the user's finger is shown with a hand dashed outline. ユーザ入力の検知が、ユーザの指606がアクティブ表示領域502内に移動するより前に、拡張センサ領域504内で開始する。 Detecting user input, before the user's finger 606 is moved into the active display region 502, it begins in the expanded sensor area 504. 図9のユーザの指606の動作によって指し示されるユーザ入力は、拡張センサ領域504が表示装置500に含められなかった場合より素早く特定され得る。 User input pointed to by the motion of the user's finger 606 in FIG. 9 can be quickly identified than if extension sensor area 504 is not included in the display device 500. より素早くユーザ入力が特定され得るのは、拡張センサ領域504がない場合には、アクティブ表示領域502のエッジにユーザの指606が到達するまで、ユーザの指606の位置が検知され始めないからである。 By more quickly the user input may be specified, if there is no extension sensor region 504, the edge of the active display area 502 until the user's finger 606 has reached, since the position of the user's finger 606 is not started to be detected is there.

図9のユーザ入力は、拡張センサ領域内で開始するとして示されている。 User input of FIG. 9 is shown as starting at extended sensor area. しかしながら、言及しておくべきことには、ユーザ入力はアクティブ表示領域502及び拡張センサ領域504の双方の外側で(例えば、表示装置500のエッジに沿ったところで)開始してもよい。 However, it should be mentioned, the user inputs the outside of both the active display area 502 and the extended sensor region 504 (e.g., where along the edge of the display device 500) may start. ユーザ入力はなおも、拡張センサ領域504が表示装置500に含められなかった場合より素早く特定され得る。 User input still be quickly identified than if extension sensor area 504 is not included in the display device 500. 何故なら、(ユーザの指606がアクティブ表示領域502に到達するのを待つのでなく)拡張センサ領域504にユーザの指606が到達した時に、動作が検知され始めることになるからである。 Is because so that when the user's finger 606 has reached the (user's finger 606 is not waiting for reaching the active display area 502) extended sensor region 504, the operation starts to be detected.

図10は、ユーザ入力の他の一例とともに図5の表示装置例500を示している。 Figure 10 shows a display device example 500 of FIG. 5 with another example of the user input. 表示装置500は、上述のように、拡張センサ領域504(平行線模様を用いて図示)によって囲まれたアクティブ表示領域502を含んでいる。 Display device 500, as described above, contains the active display area 502 surrounded by the expanded sensor area 504 (shown with cross-hatching). ユーザの指606を介して、ユーザ入力が受け取られる。 Through the user's finger 606, user input is received.

図10のユーザ入力は、左から右への動作として示されており、このユーザ入力は、アクティブ表示領域502内で開始して拡張センサ領域504内で終了している。 User input 10 is shown as an operation from left to right, the user input is terminated by starting in the active display area 502 within the expanded sensor area 504. ユーザの指の終了位置が、破線の輪郭の手を用いて示されている。 End position of the user's finger is shown with a hand dashed outline. 他の例では、動作の終了位置は、アクティブ表示領域502及び拡張センサ領域504の双方の外側(例えば、表示装置500のエッジに沿ったところ)であってもよい。 In another example, the end position of the operation may be outside of both the active display area 502 and the extended sensor region 504 (e.g., where along the edges of the display device 500). ユーザ入力の検知が、ユーザの指606が拡張センサ領域504内に移動するより前に、アクティブ表示領域内で開始する。 Detecting user input, before the user's finger 606 moves into the extended sensor region 504, it begins in the active display area. ユーザの指606の動作を拡張センサ領域504内で終わらせる(あるいは、ユーザの指の動作が拡張センサ領域504を通り過ぎるようにする)ことにより、ユーザ入力を特定する際に、拡張センサ領域504内でのユーザ入力の位置を使用することができる。 Terminating the operation of the user's finger 606 in the extended sensor area 504 (or the operation of the user's finger to pass by extension sensor area 504) by the time of identifying the user input, expanded sensor area 504 it can be used the position of the user input in. 例えば、図8の入力ハンドラーモジュール804により、表示領域のエッジ付近に表示された特定のアイコン又はオブジェクトに留まるようにユーザによって意図された入力とは対照的に、そのユーザ入力が表示装置を横切って左から右へのジェスチャ又はスワイプであることが決定され得る。 For example, the input handler module 804 of FIG. 8, in contrast to the intended input by the user to remain in a particular icon or object displayed in the vicinity of the edge of the display area, the user input across the display device it may be determined that a gesture or swipe from left to right.

図11は、ユーザ入力の他の一例とともに図5の表示装置例500を示している。 Figure 11 shows a display device example 500 of FIG. 5 with another example of the user input. 表示装置500は、上述のように、拡張センサ領域504(平行線模様を用いて図示)によって囲まれたアクティブ表示領域502を含んでいる。 Display device 500, as described above, contains the active display area 502 surrounded by the expanded sensor area 504 (shown with cross-hatching). ユーザの指606を介して、ユーザ入力が受け取られる。 Through the user's finger 606, user input is received.

図11のユーザ入力は、“<”形状での右から左及び上から下への動作として示されている。 User input of FIG. 11, "<" are left and upper right of the form illustrated as operation down. 図11のユーザ入力は、アクティブ表示領域502内で開始して終了しているが、拡張センサ領域504を通っている。 User input of FIG. 11, although start and end in the active display area 502, passes through the extension sensor region 504. ユーザの指の終了位置が、破線の輪郭の手を用いて示されている。 End position of the user's finger is shown with a hand dashed outline. 拡張センサ領域504内でのユーザ入力の検知は、図11に示されたユーザ入力がアクティブ表示領域502のエッジに沿って入力されることを可能にする。 Detection of user input in the extended sensor region 504 allows a user input as shown in FIG 11 is input along the edges of the active display area 502. ユーザ入力がアクティブ表示領域502のエッジの外側を通るとしても、拡張センサ領域504内でユーザ入力が検知される。 User input even through the outer edge of the active display area 502, the user input is detected within the extended sensor area 504.

図12は、ユーザ入力の他の一例とともに図5の表示装置例500を示している。 Figure 12 shows a display device example 500 of FIG. 5 with another example of the user input. 表示装置500は、上述のように、拡張センサ領域504(平行線模様を用いて図示)によって囲まれたアクティブ表示領域502を含んでいる。 Display device 500, as described above, contains the active display area 502 surrounded by the expanded sensor area 504 (shown with cross-hatching). ユーザの指606を介して、ユーザ入力が受け取られる。 Through the user's finger 606, user input is received.

図12のユーザ入力は、左から右への動作として示されており、このユーザ入力は、アクティブ表示領域502内に移動することなく、拡張センサ領域504内で開始して終了している。 User input 12 is shown as an operation from left to right, the user input, without moving to the active display area 502, and start and end in the extension sensor area 504. ユーザの指の終了位置が、破線の輪郭の手を用いて示されている。 End position of the user's finger is shown with a hand dashed outline. ユーザ入力の検知が拡張センサ領域504内で開始する。 Detecting user input starts within the extended sensor area 504. しかしながら、ユーザの指606はアクティブ表示領域502内に移動されず、且つユーザの指606の移動方向はアクティブ表示領域502の方を向いていないので、このユーザ入力に関する入力データは、図8の入力ハンドラーモジュール804に提供される必要がない。 However, the finger 606 of the user is not moved to the active display area 502, and the moving direction of the user's finger 606 is not facing the active display area 502, the input data for this user input, the input of FIG. 8 need not be provided to the handler module 804. 故に、ユーザ入力が拡張センサ領域504内に留まったままであるときには、ユーザ入力に基づくアクションが起こされる必要はない。 Thus, when the user input remains lodged in the extended sensor region 504 is not required to action based on user input is awakened.
